If there is one thing we can agree on collectively, it’s that Dragons are pretty frickin’ cool. Something about these fire-breathing, scaly, giant flying lizards has endured throughout our history, literature, and mythology. This week join Tuong and Daring Dragon Riders, Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster as they take to the skies and reign down a fiery Top 5 Dragons list!
The saga of ranking fictional animals continues!
The bond between horses and people is something special that we have witnessed in real life and in fiction. There is something majestic and bad ass about these creatures that have stuck with us over centuries that we keep coming back to. In fiction in particular, we see these loyal animals in some of the most entertaining stories while also being the heart of why the main character often succeeds. Join Tuong La and Montreal Improv’s Vinny Francois, Kadi Diop, and Stefan Spec as they gallop into your hearts and neigh out a Top 5 Fictional Horse list!
Gotta Rank’Em All!
…okay maybe not all of them but you get the idea. For over 20 years, Pokémon is still, to this day, one of the most beloved franchises of all time. In fact in many ways, Pokémon has never been more popular – now catering to the adults who grew up with the franchise as well as the younger generation of newcomers…er trainers. From the humble beginnings of only 150 Pokémon to now 800+ there has never been a better time to rank them! So join Tuong La and Gym Leaders Samantha Leggatt, Sarah Ghadbane, and Angus MacDonald as they pit their love of Pokémon, into the Ranked Poké-Gym, to battle it out and find out what the Top 5 Best Pokemon are!
Talkin’ Tuong returns in it’s first episode of the decade to talk about a very eventful month!
Join Tuong La as he goes solo to ramble about all the news that came out in January as well as Adam Sandler’s Uncut Gems, Sam Mendes’s 1917, and the nightmare that everyone can’t stop talking about…CATS!
We made it to 2020!
A brand new decade of PodCavern is here and the gang is prepared for yet another year of Top 5 Lists! But before we can properly ring in the new year, as per every year, we must give some love to video games. At the outset, it seemed like 2019 would be an underwhelming year for games as the world prepares for a new generation of consoles in 2020. Turns out we were delightfully wrong! 2019 not only had some wild gaming moments but it also gave us meaningful free-to-play/subscription serviced games, expansions that felt like full games, and remakes of games that were built from the ground up that went above and beyond. So join Tuong La and Game Guru’s Matthew Whalley, Angus MacDonald, and Ethan Howieson as they celebrate the best games of 2019!
Wait a sec…haven’t we done this episode already?
All the way hidden in the shadowy depths of the PodCavern, there was an episode that was sealed away due to it’s over-complicated ground rules that ultimately created a list which did not represent the original spirit of the topic! This week we finally release that episode from it’s year long shackles and bring you Top 5 Fictional Worlds to live In PREDUX featuring your host Tuong La and the A-Team Leslie Cserepy, Angus MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt!
On this month’s edition of Talkin’ Tuong, join Tuong La and special guest Esther Freeman as they solve the mystery of Detective Pikachu, triple the body-count in the ever so joyously violent John Wick 3, and get taken on a magic carpet ride through Disney’s new Aladdin film!
Let’s bring you back to the good ol’ days.
Remember when Saturday Mornings were the best time of the week? What better way to start the weekend than to wake up in your jammies, eat your favorite sugary cereal, turn on your oversized CRT TV’s, and binge watch cartoons for hours on end. It was truly a wondrous era that swept North American pop culture for years on end which has sadly vanished in this day in age. So hop in our time machine as Tuong La and Nostalgic Cartoon Lovers Axandre Lemours, Ali Harris, and Catherine Ballachey take you back to the glory days of being a kid and rank the Top 5 best Saturday Morning Cartoons!
On this edition of Talkin’ Tuong, join Tuong and special guest Nivala Maharaj as they find out if everything is still awesome in The Lego Movie 2, observe if Dreamworks has finally learned How to Train Your Dragon, and capping the month of February with a Trailer Round Up!
“Yessss my master” *kneels down cowering*
Fictional villains often seem to have unlimited resources to fund their evil plans. Even though we, the audience, are taught to despise these villains, sometimes it’s hard to resist their wealth of cash, their nefarious moral compass, or their smarmy accent. It’s times like these when we wonder “What would it be like to work for this villain?”. Would they treat me well? What’s the benefits package like? Will I die horribly? These are the questions we ask on this week’s Ranked as Tuong La and Underling Candidates Taylor Fleming, Alex Toth, and Josef Addleman rank the Top 5 Best Villains to Work For!
